    Towels are more absorbent if you NEVER use fabric softener on them. I also set a weight on the towel, like a foil-wrapped brick or a heavy filled bucket. Doing that gets the towel into more contact with the pet urine. If your towels have always been washed with fabric softener or dryer sheets, then add a cup of vinegar in the rinse water for several washings, to clean out the softener. I have never tried the baking soda so I will try that from now on. Thanks!

    I totally agree. Microfiber cloths should never be washed with fabric softener. I use vinegar 90% of the time instead of softener. The microfiber cloth I used picked up most of the urine and then the baking soda picks up the rest as well as deodorizing. You can also use a vinegar rinse afterwards to get any extra baking soda out and to disinfect.
